Sure, but we did not even specify a choice of hash functions in the 
current version.

So, specifying what must/should be supported will enhance 
interoperability but would be more restrictive than our prior statements 
on this issue.

Does anyone know if the list of hash functions posted by Florian 
(thanks!) would be considered sufficient by government agencies? Or common?

Hope everyone is having a great day!
